In 2023, we distributed 68,000 bicycles to help mobilize individuals in seven countries to pursue education, healthcare, and economic opportunity.
Not only did your support help us reach a 🎉 milestone 750,000 bicycles 🎉, we also expanded into a new program country – Uganda!
In Uganda, we’re mirroring the same model we’ve used in Colombia, Kenya, Malawi, Zambia and Zimbabwe. That includes a bicycle assembly facility, staff, mechanics and supervisory committees, as well as philanthropic programming and social enterprise opportunities.
It’s been an epic ride, but we’re nowhere close to finished. We’re on a mission to provide 1 million Buffalo Bicycles and mobilize 5 million people by 2025. And then? The sky’s the limit.
Our amazing community around the globe used their talents to fundraise for World Bicycle Relief and support the Power of Bicycles.
World Bicycle Relief was named the global charity partner for this year’s UCI Cycling World Championships in Scotland. Highlighting the incredible #powerofthebike, world champion athletes Annemiek van Vleuten, Marianne Vos, Kate Courtney, and Evie Richards showed that whether its an athlete racing for the podium or a student racing for her education, bicycles are a powerful tool for empowerment.
Our global community came together, supported by partners Backroads, Quadlock, and SCOTT Sports, for the 4th annual Pedal to Empower movement. More than 6,200 people around the world came together to empower women and girls to break down barriers with bikes. Supporters and fundraisers raised $825,000 to transform communities.
We love when our partners and supporters combine impact and a little bit of fun with events meant to highlight the vital role of bicycles.
Across the globe, our dedicated partners are helping us generate deeper impact in the areas where we work and support more communities moving forward with life-changing bicycles.
The Buffalo Bicycle isn’t a bike – it’s a life-changer. Our new campaign highlights how people everywhere are innovating with the Buffalo Bicycle to change their world. Will YOU be the catalyst we need to reach our goal? Help us empower 11,000 more people around the world with bicycles by Dec. 31st!
